I just spotted this post about checking to see how secure you password is. I’m happy to say that all of mine are fine, but how about you? Are you using a weak password?

You should go read the post yourself but briefly, the author says that you can check up how strong your password is by using Google and what’s called an MD5 hash generator. All you need to do is generate an MD5 hash (there’s a link to do this on the site), and then copy and paste the hash into Google.

If Google returns your password by finding sites with the hash on, then you need to go change your password(s) NOW!

My thanks to the author.
